UK legislation included consists of the European Communities Act 1972, European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993, and European Parliamentary Elections Act 2002.
They are the 1991 War Crimes Act that allows the trial of former Nazis accused of murder, the 1999 European Parliamentary Elections Act, which brought in a PR list system for elections, and the 2000 Act that lowered the homosexual age of consent to 16.
Since then, it has only been used three times: for the War Crimes Act 1991 allowing Nazis accused of murder to be prosecuted, the European Parliamentary Elections Act 1999, bringing in a list system for candidates, and the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 2000 which set the age of consent for homosexual acts at 16.
It was used by the Tories to pass the War Crimes Act in 1991, allowing Nazi war criminals to be brought to trial, and by Labour in 1999 to implement the European Parliamentary Elections Act on proportional representation for MEPs.
